I'm sort of obsessed with entertaining people. It's why I bend over backwards to make my friends laugh, it's a big part of why I make games for a living, and it's how I feel most at ease in most social situations.
On a camping trip, I was horsing around with some friends on a grassy hill next to a lake. We were making ourselves dizzy rolling down the hill. So, I'm lying there on my back with the world spinning around me, and I think about all those funny videos you see of dizzy people trying to run around. I figure it'll crack my friends up, so I quickly stand up and try to run. Well, I'm on a slope, so it's no surprise that I start running downhill, then tumbling downhill, then spilling over a 4-foot drop at the end of the hill onto some rocks and mud. I'm lying there, ass bruised and hand sprained, listening to their concerned shouts. I decide I should do something to let them know I'm okay. I stand up! I'm still dizzy though, so I go reeling backwards towards the lake. They save me right before I hit the water.
All that to say that I will go pretty far for a laugh.
I still act like an adult most of the time though. I take my work seriously, try to stay healthy, set goals and blah, blah blah...
On this other camping trip, I rolled my ankle jumping over a 2-foot creek immediately after teasing my friends for taking the easy way across.
Seriously though, I try to surround myself with people who challenge and inspire me. People who are smarter, more dedicated, and more conscientious than I am. Partly because I admire them, but mostly because I'm often afraid of becoming complacent. I want to constantly remind myself that I've got work to do.
Another time camping, I sloshed a skillet full of hot bacon grease onto my hand.
